It isn’t always obvious, but there’s no denying that Jay Z plays an integral part in the careers of this generation’s leading ladies of colour.
These…being ‘Story of Beauty’ belle Beyonce and ‘Rehab‘ stunner Rihanna. Husband to one while co-manager to the other, the last few years have seen him use the expertise he no doubt picked up from the former to ironically turn the latter into her greatest competition….despite their differing talent levels.
Now, peep what he had to say on his relationship with both ladies during the press round for his #1 album ‘Magna Carta Holy Grail‘ below!
Speaking to Hot 97’s Angie Martinez on Rihanna’s seemingly wild lifestyle, the star shared:
‘That’s not my place, no, again, I can’t control the outcome of her life. I can’t intervene, I can give advice when asked and that’s it. I can provide information and then life has to play out, life has to happen.”
Reportedly referring to her recent decision to reunite with former boyfriend/collaborator Chris Brown, Jay’s comments on Rihanna came before he spoke openly on Beyonce, telling Martinez:
‘Right now, Bey has 100,000 amazing songs, just playing ’em. We dance to it (Beyonce’s fifth album) in our socks!’
When quizzed on how many children he’d like to father with the 17 time Grammy winner, he joked:
“Get this little basketball team going. … It’s all part of the elaborate plan.”
